The County Fair


















It's been a week of Fair rides and 5am mornings.
Primping pigs and fitting steers for shows, making sure Mom has ironed crisp those show shirts.
Elephant ears and corn dogs, mixed with memories of hard work coming to fruition.
Acknowledging that really....it is all a gift from God.
Every good thing comes from Him: our successes, our failures, our chances to learn, to interact with others and show them a Christ-like attitude no matter what comes our way.
Win or lose, these days of 4-H have been a wonderful addition in the memory book.
And my jam?
It was a delicious recipe and won an award!!
Fun times!

Your children are good examples of the character built from hard work. :-)
Congratulations of your jam. I love that recipe. I used Keeping it Cozy's recipe this summer and we have loved it. It's a keeper for sure.

Smiles and hugs,
Carol
